[Q] Issues Rooting with 4.1.2
I've got a t999 (not LTE) with UVDMD5 build running 4.1.2. I have been trying all evening to root for the first time, but I just can't seem to get it. I first went with High On Android's method
and all went smoothly until I tried to open the .zip file in ClockworkModRecovery - phone just goes into plain old Android recovery mode.
I thought downloading mskip's Unified Toolkit
would solve all my life's problems, but 7.0 doesn't appear to support my particular model and the comments about how to get version 7.5 may as well be in German for all I understand. I've searched all over the forums and found similar issues, but the ones I've seen with replies were equally difficult to understand. I'm still pretty nooby here.
I don't care about resetting the counter - I don't have any kind of warranty to deal with. Has someone rooted a t999 running 4.1.2 who can help me figure out what I'm doing wrong in plain English?
